Lindsay Lohan saga continues, as she is hauled off to jail again

As detailed in this CBS News piece, the latest installment of a (now tiresome?) starlet drama unfolded in a Los Angeles courtroom today:

Actress Lindsay Lohan is back behind bars after failing a court-ordered drug test. A Los Angeles judge has refused to set bail and ordered her to remain in custody.

Immediately following Friday's hearing, which lasted only ten minutes, bailiffs escorted the 24-year-old Lohan from the Beverly Hills courtroom. Her next stop was the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, the same facility she was released from less than two months ago....

[This] will be Lohan's third jail stint in a 3-year-old drug and drunken driving case after a pair of high-profile arrests in 2007. The only difference from her previous jail stints is that this time Lohan will not be released early.

Two weeks ago, Lohan tested positive for cocaine and amphetamines at a random drug screening, and then admitted her failure via Twitter calling it a "setback," reports RadarOnline. After publicly admitting her "setback," a judge issued a warrant for her arrest, which led to today's court appearance.

According to People, "She's being held by court order until her hearing on Oct. 22. She will be held in the same conditions as her last stay, in a keep-away unit." Until that formal probation violation hearing, Lohan will have to sit tight for 28 days in her 8 by 12-foot jail cell to learn her sentence for failing two court-ordered drug tests.

UPDATE:  State judges ultimately allowed Lohan to make bail, leading the Los Angeles Times to explore an enduring question in this piece headlined "Did Lindsay Lohan get special treatment? Some experts say yes, others say no".

and the stupidty keeps on coming. havent' they spent enough money on a set of 3 year old mistermeaner charges? Give her a friggin jail sentence and be done with it. Would be better for HER and US.

as for this bit of criminal stupidity!

"Lohan will have to sit tight for 28 days in her 8 by 12-foot jail cell to learn her sentence for failing two court-ordered drug tests."

Hasnt' the judge already ordered that every time she fails a test the judge was gonna order a 30 day stent in jail? so basically by the time she does see this idiot....sentence will basiclaly be over?
